Rose and I have pledged to each other and ourselves to eat only REAL food for the next four weeks.
What does this mean you may ask? It is really quite simple, if it is not provided by mother earth we will not eat it.
The list of foods allowed are:
- Fish & Seafood
- Natural oils, olive oil, coconut oil etc
It is actually amazing the beautiful meals and snacks that we have been enjoying so far and our families are loving it too. It is not easy breaking the sugar and chemical addiction that we have from processed foods but so far I am feeling excited about my future healthy relationship with REAL food.
I start diets or healthy eating plan’s most Monday’s. It is such a bad habit of mine and has been for my entire adult life. (I am pretty sure Rose & I share this in common) All weekend I have a wonderful time eating, drinking and having a blast and it is all OK because I am starting my new plan on Monday.
It has become beyond ridiculous. Monday I am good, Tuesday I am good, Wednesday I start letting go and by Thursday it is all over!
I said to Rose… ‘This time we are truly wanting to change our lifestyle and our bad habits so we can’t start on a Monday.’
So we have decided to start on fun day Sunday instead! You heard it hear folks, yes half way through the weekend!
We have planned a big cook up (with natures food only) on Sunday night with both of our families to get them involved. (They don’t know it yet but their lifestyles are about to change too!) Rose has been assigned the dinner challenge and I am in charge of the entree and desert. I am yet to work out if there is such a thing as a desert made from only nature’s food, but that is all part of the discovery.
